Last night, Declan and I had a dance party to the Beatles. The first thng he said this morning, before even Good Morning, was “Can I listen the the Beatles now???” Good man.
Bryan just called. Declan had a dental checkup this morning. First off, he did AWESOME. He let the dentist do all sorts of poking and prodding…. and his teeth look really good. WTG Dex! BUT. The dentist says he needs to get rid of his “lovie”- OH MY GOD. His lovie is actually a set of 14 blue stuffed puppies, whose ears he sucks whenever he is tired, upset or just needs some luff (to quote Luka Bloom). The dentist says that the sucking has moved his teeth about 6mm already… and that adult teeth follow the pattern of baby teeth… So the sucking is only going to continue to make it worse. Eek.
He got his first Puppy from Oma while still in the NICU… That original puppy was bigger than Declan was. As he grew, he developed a taste for their ears, and we stockpiled puppies to be able to wash and rotate them.
Sigh… How the hell are we going to get this kid to give them up???
Both “Greeble” and “Monkey” were my son’s nicknames while he was in my belly. So Greeblemonkey is where I document our lives. I am a graphic designer/web developer from Denver who loves music and movies and the two goofballs I live with. I take pottery classes and also actively pursue photography as a hobby. And when I say pursue, I mean chase my husband Bryan and my son Declan around the house with a camera.
Bryan and I grew up in Maryland but moved to Denver over 13 years ago. Denver is definitely home for us now. We’ve been married over a decade and Bryan is the funniest person I know. Except maybe Declan, who is quickly climbing the ranks.
Thanks for stopping by.
